When we would watch the show Man versus Food on television, we would marvel at how the host Adam Richman would travel across America to win competitions made up by restaurants to become the ‘next food champion’.

Well, in Mumbai an American portion may seem like a genuine challenge by itself, but having said that, sometimes restaurants open up challenges that give you serious foodie goals.
